The Rolex GMT Master was first introduced in 1954 with the reference 6542, but the model is still manufactured today and during all these years multiple examples have been produced featuring different dials, sizes and used materials. The two-tone gold and stainless steel reference 1675 here offered is one of those and along with the one in steel, and the one in gold were introduced in the 1959. They were launched because Rolex decided to update the precedent reference changing the bezel in metalic and the mechanism in a new one. This lot is preserved in very beautiful conditions with a nice satin finish on the lugs: the crown guards, introduced with this model, are still cool and defined. The dial has indeed been realized in a dark brown color with applied luminous yellow gold baton, triangular and dot indexes, for this reason also know as nipple dial given the particular shape of these numerals. The outer minute/seconds divisions is open while is for sure present the aperture for the date, magnified by the cyclops lens on the crystal glass.
